Sports Medicine Acupuncture Certification (SMAC) Webinar Program - Module IV: Neck, Shoulder, and Upper Extremity - Course 3

Course Overview

This 2-day class highlights how the channel sinews (jingjin) also known in modern day as myofascial sequences organize efficient movement patterns and balance the major joint structures of the neck, shoulder and upper extremity. Focus is on understanding how imbalances in these channels can contribute to pain and injury. Western assessment will be taught and practiced with TCM based acupuncture treatment and channel theory applied for the practitioner to discover measurable differences.

Course Objectives

  • Learn how neck, shoulder and upper extremity myofascial pathways correlate with functional anatomy.
  • Learn the tissues belonging to each sinew channel and their functional anatomy relationship.
  • Learn in theory how to determine which my myofascial sinew channels need to be assessed and treated for musculoskeletal injury.
  • Learn normal and abnormal movement patterns of the neck, shoulder and upper extremity and its relationship to the sinew channels.
